Democrats in the House of Representatives plan to introduce articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Monday, two sources familiar with the matter said, in the wake of a violent storming of the U.S. Capitol after a  pro-Trump rally.

If successful, the move would mark a historic first: No president has ever been impeached twice.

Democrats had called on Vice President Mike Pence and Trump's Cabinet to invoke the U.S. Constitution's 25th Amendment, which allows them to remove the president if he is unable to discharge his official duties. But Pence is opposed to the idea, an adviser said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Trump "unhinged" on Friday and said Congress must do everything possible to protect Americans, even though Trump's term in office ends on Jan. 20.

Trump exhorted thousands of followers on Wednesday to march to the Capitol, prompting a chaotic scene in which crowds breached the building, sent lawmakers into hiding, and left a police officer and four others dead in their wake.
